Arlene M. Martin passed away at Wellspan Ephrata Community Hospital on May 1, 2021 at the age of 88 after a brief illness. She was born March 20, 1933 in East Earl. She was the daughter of Moses and Elsie Horning.
She married Lester E. Martin on February 5, 1955. Although she was a homemaker much of her life, she also held various jobs and gave time volunteering. Her love of cooking provided opportunities for her to volunteer at Mt. Airy Fire Hall banquets and work at several local restaurants. She also operated a children's clothing booth at Green Dragon. Up until her illness, she filled her hours with her passion of artistic painting.
Arlene touched the lives of many with her gift of hospitality, her artistic gift of painting and her gift of cooking and baking.
